Abiodun has expressed confidence that the incumbent state Governor, Ibikunle Amosun would make up with him, support his candidature as the governorship candidate of All Progressive Alliance (APC) for the state and also lead the campaign for his election.
The APC governorship candidate maintained that Amosun would kick start the APC campaign in the state and use the occasion to raise his hand up as the authentic APC governorship candidate for Ogun state in the coming general elections.
Fielding questions from journalists regarding the position of the incumbent governor, who has on many occasions declared that he would neither recognise him nor support his candidature, Abiodun explained that Amosun would attend the flag off of his governorship campaign when it was time for campaign.
He explained that the state leadership of the party still had time between now and election period to resolve whatever intra-party wrangling threatening the cohesion of the party and the possibility of approaching the election as one united political family.
“Our issues are internal and there is no how such internal crisis would not occur. I am assured and confident that all issues relating to our party state executive will be resolved”.
“I am convinced that there is still enough time between now and the election time. We have mechanism within the party that we use in settling our disputes. We still have about enough days to the election and I am confident that before then, our disputes with the state executive committee of the party would be settled”.
“We would soon flag off the campaign and of course the governor would be at our flag off. And of course, the governor of the state is the leader of the party, I don’t have the doubt in my mind that the governor of Ogun state will be at the flag off and raise my hand up as the candidate of the party”.
The APC governorship candidate however, used the occasion to reel out programmes with which he intended administer the affair of the state and also rejuvenate the Ogun economy if elected next year.
